Note: amended the title and this OP as later information (detailed in later posts) came to light changing my perspective on the PVP model.
Massively brought this video to my attention, where Bethesda shares their tongue in cheek views on "multiplayer" interaction.
What is notable is a comment about brushing up on your "non-verbal" communication. Perhaps we won't be able to chat with others in game? Pluses and minuses I suppose.
They include a closing vignette where an obvious player "gank squad" appears on the scene and destroys peaceful bystanders, and then turn on each other.
It's pretty clear from the reveal at Quakecon this shouldn't be much of an issue.
They have confirmed the game has some looting, of "junk" items only but you can't drop weapons, armor or other valuables.
